As Independence Day approaches, so do countless celebrations and parties. While food, fireworks, and community events are great, each year many Georgians make the unfortunate decision to drive while under the influence following these events.
More than 41% of all fatal automobile crashes in 2014 involved drunk drivers during the holiday period of 6 PM July 3rd until 5:59 AM July 7th. Each year there are multiple anti-drunk driving campaigns advertised: Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over, Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving, and more. But these do not always prevent mistakes from being made.
Jones & Swanson has created an infographic with 4th of July statistics to educate readers on the pressing issue of drunk driving during the holiday season. Please feel free to download and share with friends and family on social media. The more people that are exposed to the harsh statistics surrounding alcohol consumption and driving, the higher chance of preventing further accidents and unnecessary deaths.
